Extraordinary Mothers and Daughters

Stories of Ambition, Resilience, and Unstoppable Love

by Emily Freidenrich

#ExtraordinaryMothersandDaughters #NetGalley

This is a lovely book and one that is certain to be (deservedly) popular. It would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift or a gift for a new mother who could derive inspiration from those who became moms before her. This title will also be of interest to those who are fascinated by women’s life stories and/or by women in the arts.

Some of the mother-daughter pairings include Ingrid Bergman and Isabella Rosselini; Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross; Phoebe Eprhron and Nora Ephron; Tina Knowles Lawson and her daughters Solange and Beyonce; Nina Simone and Lia Simone Kelly, and many more. For each there is a photo, biographical information and thoughts that the family members have about their relative. Throughout, there are also some floral illustrations.

The pair’s stories are organized into sections. Some of these include

Like Mother, Like Daughter: Following in her footsteps and in her embrace

Side by Side: Mothers and daughters as peers and costars, best friends and biggest fans

To Thine own Self: Reconciling your shadows and finding the light of your own way, and several other chapters as well.

This book is so well designed and a pleasure to read. Go in order or dip in randomly. Readers will enjoy the experience either way.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
